Hiscox Cyber Readiness Report 2020

The fourth annual international Hiscox cyber readiness report provides an up-to-the-minute picture of the cyber readiness of organisations, and offers a blueprint for best practice in the fight to counter an ever-evolving threat. It is based on a survey of executives, departmental heads, IT managers and other key professionals. Drawn from a representative sample of 5,569 organisations across eight countries by size and sector, this survey explores the actions of the people on the front line of the business battle against cyber crime.

Country-by-country

Cyber event costs and security investment have increased around the world. Check out risks for businesses in your country and explore local cyber insurance offerings.

While the number of firms reporting a breach is down, the cost and intensity of criminal activity in this area appear markedly higher… cyber readiness comes in many forms. We hope this report, with its numerous examples of best practice, will help people better understand and respond to the challenge.
